I can’t believe it’s my third trimester already, I mean I feel like I’ve been pregnant forever….but not really!?! I’m rounding the final stretch where I’m going to blow up like a blimp and get HUGE, which is not exciting at all. We still haven’t picked a name for this child, we have one we like but haven’t made a firm decision on it. Naming a kid is really hard, you can’t name it after anyone you ever hated, and you would be surprised how many names that excludes. >:)
Above are selfies from Instagram of me being pregnant… LOL!!! ” Oh hey look at me stretch out this shirt!” I’ve also noticed that I’ve been wearing a lot of horizontal stripes lately….. why do they make maternity shirts like that I wonder?!?
I did take and fail both of my glucose tests, which means I have Gestational Diabetes….and that’s annoying. I have to meet with a nutritional consultant so they can tell me not to drink soda or eat candy, which I don’t do much anymore. I also have to take my blood sugar 4 times a day and
HOLY SHIT BALLS the strips cost a ton. I thought I would pee my pants when the girl rang mine up the other day. $140 for 100 strips and I have to check 4 times a day for the next 3 months. : / Thankfully since I’ve been keeping track and eating a WAY better diet, my numbers are decent (as far as I know)..which is really good since I couldn’t get an appointment with the nutritionist until the 22nd of this month!!!
I don’t think I covered the nursery in the last baby post, probably because we didn’t even have a plan then. We are doing a safari theme, which is why in the above photo I have some baby Tiger pajamas (hubs bought those), I can’t freaking wait till he can wear those!
The paint colors were picked long before the theme, and it just so happens that my dad has a vinyl machine, so hooray for awesome animal wall art!! Of course the art has names but not the baby, we have Randy the Ostrich and Felix the Monkey! I have a couple of Toucans that I haven’t hung yet.
So yeah, that’s pretty much everything….
….. and now we wait…..
